Introducing µTorrent Pro, now for $19.95 and including a Streaming beta

As of today, our new premium subscribers for µTorrent will notice an upgrade: The debut of our new µTorrent Pro tier, available for $19.95 per year.

Replacing µTorrent Plus, the new and redesigned Pro (available for Windows users only) includes a beta version of Instant Streaming for users to watch or preview torrent files, such as BitTorrent Bundles, as they download. Other Pro features include built-in virus protection, an HD player and file converter to play files across all platforms – including mobile and Apple TV.

You will notice a few additional updates: our website now has a new look and feel to give it a more modern design, and we have launched a new Help Center designed to aid users in getting the most out of the client.

µTorrent Pro will continue to be updated with new features as we continue to work to make it the best experience. Pro users will gain early access to these updates at no extra charge.

While our free users have access to our new Help Center to research solutions to their issues, Pro will continue to have access to our Customer Support Team for one-on-one assistance with any technical or billing-related issues you encounter.

Existing Plus users can already access this new Pro tier, but the change requires uninstalling and reinstalling the software. We will have an auto-update available in the near future.

To recap, here are the features available exclusively to Pro users:

  • Stream instantly before downloads complete (beta)
  • Integrated HD media player and file converter
  • Automatic Anti-Virus Protection
  • Early access to cutting-edge features
  • Full customer support
  • No Ads

We’re committed to bringing the best experience to µTorrent, in design, features, and customer service. Stay tuned for more updates as they develop.

    So basically, uTorrent is becoming more and more like Vuze – the exact opposite of the light weight and uncluttered product it once was. I hate to be that guy but I believe many would agree with me when I say I picked uTorrent precisely _because_ it was simple, not in spite of.

    • Evan Peters

      I agree with you, but there are a lot of alternatives available on linux. And those ARE lighweight. Just install them in a linux box or virtual machine.

    I’m a bit disappointed in utorrent as of late … as David Haraldsson said, its a shame it has become exactly the problem it was trying to address in the first place 🙁 ……. It now has ads, player, premium option (which is not an option at all) …. thanks for the good ride guys, hope you the best in your future endeavours, but it’s again time to look for a product that fills my needs. As far as I’m concerned, torrent clients should aim for less visibility and you are just doing the exact opposite. Cheers!

    Fully agree with David and Cepar. Get your act back together.

    I love the client but I wish there was another paid version to get rid of the ads. I don’t need any of the pro features, but I’d love to do away with the ads and support uTorrent in some way. It’s hard to justify $25CAD a year just to remove ads as I won’t use any of the extra features.

    • Evan Peters

      The free version ads can be removed. They have put the option in there. Just search the internet for “how to”.

  • WarningU2

    Have to agree with the previous posters. I have been using uTorrent for a number of years and been very pleased with it, however with the constant ads now, and that it is also distributed with the opencandy malware, I have to look for another torrent client. I would gladly pay a one time fee just to get rid of the ads and malware.
